This movie is not for kids. It's a mafia-type movie with violence. It's not extremely gory, but there are some gory parts. And Melissa McCarthy being in this movie does NOT make it a comedy. It's dark. It's violent. But if you are an adult I think the movie is pretty good. I go to the movies often and I can usually figure it out before it ends. This movie had me thinking. I just couldn't figure out how it was going to end. When it did, I had a mix of emotions.

This title has:

Too much violence
